    This was included with some used dive gear I bought. All the gear was newer Zeegle stuff. I'd suspect it's some kind of lead line but seems too thin. As a marker the float is way too small. What is this??

    Thanks

    Would gues that it is a fishing marker buoy that someone repurposed for some particular aspect of their diving? Maybe a site mapping aid? Mark a structure, surface and take compass readings?

    EDIT: Ha! @uncfnp got you the exact model and er’thing.

    It appears to be a very early model or a copy of the Pelican float made in Torrance California by the late Dave Parker

    A few years after the introduction of the Pel-float Dave developed and produce the Pelican cases

    I really think what's sorely lacking...is a forum...entitled...''Ask Sam''...

    If Sam don't know...you don't need to know...

    Used something like that in my SSI search and recovery class to mark an object or location. Except it was yellow.
